Would a vivitar 2600-d work on a Nikon d40 digital camera?
Yes, it will. I just recently surfaced my old 2600-D and tried it out with my D40 and it works perfectly. I believe you need to have the built-in flash setting set to manual, but once you've done that you'll be good to go. After you've got the flash on the camera and powered up you may want to adjust some settings on the flash and in the camera, depending on what you're shooting, of course. I personally use the flash white balance setting set to -1. You may also want the adjust the flash compensation. I find that the best way to find the perfect settings is to just experiment and try out different things. Anyway, I hope that helped! Good luck.

when you get the camera you will get a CD too. that is where you get your software!!
Nothing to worry at all.. The areas which are flashing is Nkon's way of telling you that the bright or highlights (flashing areas) are over exposed.. When that happens, you just need to hold down the Exposure compansation button on the camera and rotate the thumbwheel one stop. That will solve it.…...:) (MORE)
I seem to be in the same boat as you, therefore my advice maybe no help, but i have heard great things about this particular camera and am looking forward to getting one soon.. If you are a relitive amateur then apparently it is very easy to use and takes great photos. The only other alternative wo…uld be the Canon EOS 400D, which is a little more expensive but is as good.. One of these 2 is probably your best bet if you dont want to spend alot. However im sure you would be happy with both. The best thing is to go into a shop and pick them up and see how it feels in your hands. Its probably down to personal choice. (MORE)
Yes it will. It will work in auto and manual modes. TTL does not work.
Make sure that it is not on the no flash mode (the circle with a crossed out flash)
Short answer: "Not recommended". Long answer: The center contact on a flash shoe transmits the signal for a flash to fire. This contact is in the same place on all cameras that use a flash shoe. If a flash has ONLY the center contact, then it may be used on any camera that will accept it.. However…, each camera manufacturer adds additional contacts onto their flashes for various additonal purposes. These contacts are different for each manufacturer. Mounting a Canon flash onto a Nikon camera may send potentially damaging electrical charges, through the additional contacts, between the two devices. These charges can potentially damage both the camera and the flash. (MORE)
I have this camera, and I also have the SB-24. I have tried to work them together, and it just won't work. The Sb024 would zoom in relation to the lens focal length, but it does not do this, and the firing of the flash would not work. Save it for your old Nikon - like an N90s or something similar. I…t's worthless on this digital body. (MORE)
yeah ... it will work on the newer cameras.. However, you are better off with a sb400/600/800 or the better 900.. They camera will auto detect the settings of these new lense ... vs. you messing around with settings.
The d60 is better. Buy this one if you can afford it. If you don't, try the d40 then. It has less features but still has great quality.
All filters are threaded to screw onto the inside threads of the outside rim of a lens. Virtually all lenses, especially those for a digital camera such as yours, will accept a screw on filter at their 'outer' rim (away from the camera). Be sure the filter you have is the same diameter as the lens -… they come in varying sizes, according to the type of lens. (MORE)
The light meter lets you set either the shutter speed or the aperature. When you look in the view finder you'll see either a red positive or red negative sign. This means there is either too much light or not enough light based upon the cameras settings. If you want to control the shutter speed set …it where you want it to be. The aperature setting is the variable setting that you move until you see a green dot in the view finder. When a green dot is found in the view finder you have the correct settings. If you can't get a green light by adjusting the aperture setting then the shutter speed is too fast for the lighting conditions. In this case move the shutter speed to a slower setting then adjust the aperture ring again. It's all about the lighting with this camera. If you do not see a green light in the view finder you do not have adquate light to expose the film properly. By the way, you should not hold a camera in your hand with a shutter speed of one sixtieth of a second or less. The picture will blur from motion. This is much easier to show than explain. I . I am a photography teacher at a local high school and we use the 3800N camera. (MORE)
ED has nothing to do with the camera mount; it is a lens (glass) quality so yes, it will fit
It certainly is one of the all time classics. Forget the megapixel blarney! If you have not got one - get out there now whilst the price is at rock bottom - you will NOT be disappointed.
Yes, but they won't act the same on a D40 as more expensive Nikons. Only AF, AF-D, AF-S, and G lenses will meter on a D40 and ony AF-S and G lenses will auto focus on a D40.
Above the zoom in and out buttons, there is a button that has a play button in a box on it, simply click that and change pictures with the arrow buttons.
In my view, the nikon d40 is not really good one. The most obvious shortcoming of the Nikon D40 camera, is the absence of an autofocus driver in the camera body. What this means, is that if autofocus is important to the way you take pictures, they you are somewhat limited in the number of lenses you… can use with the D40. Only about ten percent of the available lenses for the Nikon D40 have autofocus drives built into the lenses. Needless to say, those lenses are considerably more expensive than lenses without autofocus. In addition, most SLR's in this price range, allow you to take pictures in the RAW format, and the D40 is no exception. What is a bit surprising, is that when you take pictures with the RAW and JPEG format at the same time, the D40 only uses a very basic JPEG format. For a camera in this price range I would have expected better. You can have a see. http://www.dinodirect.com/ (MORE)
Yes, the sb600 works with all Nikon SLRs - although with some limitations on older ones.
I have a Canon Rebel series. This is really a matter of opinion, either one are great for first time DSLR owners. I personally chose at the time what camera to get based on additional lenses etc I planned to buy. It's also a good idea to test both. Hold them in your hands and see which one feels rig…ht for you. (MORE)
That all matters on opinion. I have that camera, and personally I do not like it. It has pretty good pictures if you take the time and hold still, but a lot of the pictures it takes comes out blurry. I've had it take very clear pictures occasionally, and I'm not sure if it's just me or if the camera…'s ability to take motion pictures(even the slightest bit of motion) sucks. I wouldn't recommend it if you're planning on using it to take clear and good quality pictures though. (MORE)
The newest Nikon D3000 is the best. Not only is it newest and has all these new features, but it has more megapixels and would be the same price as the other two. The Nikon D40 is great and all, but it only has 6 megapixels, and is not good in low lighting which gets REALLY annoying.

This is made by Nikon. This camera model was often criticized forits relatively short battery life.
Yes but older AF lenses that do not have an autofocus motor in them will not autofocus with the D5000.
If you've been using the D40 for basic photography or anything below professional photography or photojournalism, I'd go for the D90. On that note, if you've been using a Nikon, I'd keep using it, a) because the lenses you have now will still fit, and b) the controls and menu functions are similar. …Anyway, the 90 has a better "highest quality" setting than the new 40's, 3000's, or 5000's. It also has a larger display, and the ergonomics are fixed. (MORE)
You have pics taken with Nikon D40 camera would like to know where a particular pic was taken with it?
D40 does not have a GPS in it so it does not include locationmeta-data. You have to put all the location data manually on thecomputer. The good news though is that you can get external GPSthat will connect.
I don't particularly care for Vivitar. Nikon and Cannon are the best. However, if you can't afford those, go with a Kodak
Yes, if your camera has the detachable lens option (lens' are able to be removed from the base of the camera). All brands that are the same as your camera will fit.
Short answer is no ... most flash units are camera specific, meaning that they will only work with the camera they were designed for. . Longer answer is yes ... if you want to 100% sure none of the smaller pins short out any of the contacts on the camera then just use pc sync socket or hotshoe to p…c sync on the camera or some people just use tape. A double hotshoe adaptor that only has a center pin contact will also work. The main point is to ensure only the center pin of flash and camera is used. The flash will not be able to be used in TTL mode, but many Nikon flashes have a non TTL auto and a manual mode (dependent on model) that can be used. With old canon cameras the sync voltage needs to be below 6v, most Nikon flashes are below this but it's worthwhile checking.. (MORE)

My personal opinion is the D40, although it has less pixels it produces less image noise than the D3000 i.e. you could be using the D40 at twice the iso of the D3000 for the same amount of image noise. There are a number of differences that could be a deal breaker to some. The D3000 has better autof…ocus. The D40 has higher flash sync 1/500 using ITTL and 1/4000 when not. (MORE)
